Waiting on Baron Munchausen

About

Behold!
Surely you have heard of the Incredible Baron Munchausen?
A name that draws wonder and glamour wherever it goes!
Who's exploits are legendary and who's help you rather desperately need!
Here, on the edge of a new Millenia, in a rather lovely tavern near the pyrenes, you await the Baron. Whatever unfortunate misadventure you have got yourself into it is said that the Baron passes through here regularly to indulge in poker, tiramisu and a hearty red that he greatly enjoys.
It is your only hope, for tonight, as the evening draws in, so does the unforeseen consequences of your adventures!
Maybe you managed to save Paris from the Rat King and in doing so broke the heart of the Rat Queen and now her terrible rat guard are coming to duel you one on one and you JUST DON'T HAVE TIME! There are hundreds of them!
Maybe you saved the Pope from bandits, but alas that means there are now two identical Popes and various Vatican officials are coming to ask you concerning ethical questions about your machine….
Perhaps the Lord of Venus wants to ask you some hard questions about their Moons whereabouts?
And thus you wait, drinking fine drinks, telling stories, dealing with the wonders and terrors that come looking for you and your comrades, and hoping against hope that the Baron actually turns up!
So, how does this work?
Being a larp event, you make up a character, based on the strange worlds and stories of Baron Munchausen, you can be of any substance, from common, to noble, the only thing is that you must have is a reason why you desperately need the Barons help, some creeping Doom drawn from your own wild adventures.

What are the rules?
1 – This is largely a freeform event, magic of course does not exist, we are all rational people, but the unexplained still haunts us as we explore new vistas.
2 – You may if you wish be a remarkable servant, and have a singular power, you must be able to physically represent it, or at least describe it in such a way as not to disturb the game "Ye gads, be not afraid, my nose is the sharpest in the world! Should there be anyone here with a cheese on them I'll find it immediately! Almost as if they had signalled me to let me know they have cheese!"
3 – Combat of course happens, these are adventures! But you can't die unless you want to! Its YOUR adventure! And you would never be so crass as to KILL a person, except in a tragic accident, milked for dramatic effect! Gun powder exists, but is the remit of bounders and engineers! Its entirely up to the person on the receiving end if it hits!
4 – You can play and be whom you wish as long as you are not a bounder and unpleasant upstart, this concept is heroic, adventurous, and that is for anyone, regardless of gender, race, etc. and anyone making folk uncomfortable or unhappy will be removed post haste.
